Cinnamon Roll Scones

My 6 year-old daughter Layli loves to cook. Every Friday afternoon, we cook together. She is already planning to take over the blog and started to write recipes for us to share. 🙂

We enjoy making kale chips, cookies, lemonade, vegan Rice Krispies, and veganizing some of my own childhood recipes.

These cinnamon rolls are from the cooking class I took in 7th grade! I remember making this at home for my mom as a child. I was so proud to know a recipe. Veganizing the recipe is very easy with all the plant-based dairy alternatives.

It is a yeast-free recipe and easy for vegan baking with kids. They do have a heavy consistency so I call them cinnamon roll scones. We hope you and your kids enjoy this recipe! Happy (vegan) baking!

Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic.” – Cinderella
